Giving Tuesday 2021

Dear Friends and Allies:

 Recovery from the pandemic has added another challenge for immigrant survivors of violence. This past year, NIWAP (National Immigrant Women’s Advocacy Project) has made great strides to ensure safety and access to justice for immigrant women, children, and victims of crimes. With the help of both grants and donations, since our founding in 2012 NIWAP assisted over 16.5 K multidisciplinary legal professionals and advocates serving immigrant survivors. As a leading expert on immigration, family, public benefits, and language access, NIWAP has developed over 700 publications, including 143 policy reports and 34 amicus briefs. 

With your continued financial support, we can continue to amplify the voices of survivors of abuse. Your support allows us to ensure that survivor-centered training and support are provided for advocates, attorneys, judges, police, and prosecutors. A donation can help us with the following:

  • $50 supports intern time helping NIWAP lawyers respond to a request for assistance.
  • $100 supports NIWAP’s law students conducting and delivering legal research to a judge, family lawyer, prosecutor, or child welfare agency.
  • $250 supports social science research and case law for Amicus Briefs for pro bono partners.
  • $500 supports the development of one of NIWAP’s training podcasts for victim advocates, police or prosecutors enhancing their work with immigrant survivors.
  • $1,000 covers the time of one of NIWAP’s expert police or prosecutor trainers to join NIWAP staff to present as a virtual statewide or national training conference.

We are heartened by the strides we have made this past year and confident we can make a positive impact on the lives of immigrant survivors of violence seeking safety and access in this difficult time. Will you help us?
